I’d like to discuss this sentence: “I feel amazing.”
I quite often hear native speakers say this and (1) I believe it’s grammatically acceptable but wonder if it has ever been controversial grammarwise. (2) I believe that it simply means “I feel great / wonderful / excellent” as “amazing” is a synonym of these words and that it doesn’t mean “I feel that I am amazing” and definitely not “I feel amazed”. If it means “I feel that I am amazing”, we can likewise say “I feel boring”, “I feel interesting”, “I feel inspiring” but I don’t think these sound right.
If my beliefs (1) and (2) are correct, then I have a question:
(3) Can you think of any other -ing words that can possibly fit into this pattern: “I feel [-ing]”? I can’t.
